Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Is A Thing
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition was announced and will be out on January 16, 2018 for $30. It will come with all season 1 and 2 characters, Arcade Mode, new V-Triggers, and an Extra Battle.
Here's what Capcom has to say about the upcoming Arcade Mode:
"In the upcoming Arcade Mode, players can reminisce in the Street Fighter series history as they celebrate the last 30 years of the multi-million selling franchise. Choose from six different paths and compete in matches against CPU opponents to reveal unique endings based on player performance. In Extra Battle Mode, a new series of time exclusive challenges will be available for players to use their Fight Money for the chance to receive an exclusive premium outfit each month. Complete all four challenges each month and receive a special premium costume exclusive to this mode. With extra challenges being added and more unannounced content on the way, Street Fighter V will continue to deliver new and refreshed content on a regular basis throughout 2018 and beyond."
A new user interface is also coming next year. A clear change is the V-Trigger gauge, clearly showing what type of V-Trigger the player has selected for the fight.
Now don't freak out. All the new game modes and improvements will come as a free update for previous SFV players. Think of Arcade Edition as a Game of the Year edition package for players that want to get back into the game all updated with all the DLC characters available, or for those that never played it.
